Second time we have stayed here in a camper van. The park is beautifully laid out, with nice firm gravelled sites that are level and give you a good amount of space. Lovely natural surroundings with lots of native bush and bird life around. The facilities are fantastic, especially the bathrooms. A really good place to stay before heading off further into the West Coast.

It’s a shame we only stayed one night. The site was well structured nestled in the mountain valley. A perfect place to rest after Arthur’s Pass The main dining area was well provisioned with a welcoming log fire and comfy chairs to relax into the chilly night with a nice cup of hot chocolate. We explored the glow worms and the nearby waterfall. I would definitely make this a stopping point for any journey in the area. It is a little expensive, but given the remote location I can understand why

We were unable to stay as arrived without food. There was no pantry nor the foods stated in the information and the Tavern 800metres away closed in 2016. We lost $155.00 as we booked thru booking.com. We travelled onto Arthur’s Pass in our Motor Home, a further 40 minutes drive and to avoid back tracking as we were travelling from Greymouth to Christchurch, we found accommodation and food. The owner was apologetic. Retreat info needs updating. We are unable to have our review accepted on booking.com

Hi Ingrid, Sorry to hear, but you will be happy to know that we have new managers who have removed the info about the tavern as well as other outdated info on the website so no-one else has the same problem. We would love to see you back in the future. Jacksons Retreat Management Team

What a pleasure it was to come here! Friendly service, and a beautifully clean and well maintained property. Dog friendly; which is wonderful. Lots of little walks into the Bush where in the evenings you could see glow worms. They even provided red cellophane so the torch light didn't scare them! One beautiful small waterfall, and a larger one on DOC land (about 30min walk). Will stay there again! Kitchen and ablutions block were well stocked and clean. You can even put your tent up under cover!!

Gorgeous spot, in the middle of nowhere (or that’s what it felt like), so peaceful. Great security, excellent facilities and a bush walk with glow worms if you feel like getting outdoors. Showers were good and everything was very clean and tidy.
